Lyrics

Tell Me Quickly

Tell me quickly, tell me now
I’ve seen your face but I don’t know how
Maybe somewhere from the road
You were not young and you were not old

Take my hand child, don’t be afraid
Cause I done seen those mines you’ve laid
And I’ll just walk right over them
Jump around, come back again

Cause all I really need is those little bees
To pollinate my little trees
That come up to my daughter’s knees
She falls down laughin with the glee
That only children understand
When mud’s been oozin through their hands
And bugs become their only friends
Watch them all come back again

It’s no mystery I go insane
When that girl walks through the flame
Like she’s done a million times
She comes right back for another try
Take it off, strip it down
Like buffalos lying on the ground
They never run and they never hide
They make you feel like crap inside

So tell me quickly, tell me now
I’ve seen your face, I don’t know how
Maybe somewhere from the road
You were not young and you were not old
Take it off and lie it down
Leave them clothes there on the ground
Take my bones and take ‘em home
I don’t think I’ll go alone
